  • The gardens are a nice area to walk with the dogs even though the people who run the place appear to hate all dog owners which is odd considering the owner who donated the estate was a dog lover. Coul...  more »
  • We enjoyed a nice walk along the paths. There is plenty to see, from the dilapidated stone out buildings to the grand house. There was lots of construction work going on around the stables in January ...  more »
  • The mansion very much needs a coat of paint and its a shame that the Shell Grotto and Tea House are ruins. A great deal of work going on in the walled gardens. Hopefully the cafe will open throughout ...  more »

  • Went here on the first day of Spring, All the signs said the place was open, including signs for a Cafe, however, despite the sunshine and the signage, the whole place was shut and bolted. I visited at 3pm, and paid my £3.00 to park. Anyway, the grounds consisted of a big field and some holly filled woodlands. I noted there was quite a bit of work going on and areas cordoned off. The toilets were open, but there was no running water! I could not even fill the dog bowls that were in the court yard. I appreciate work needs to happen on these mansions, but I was disappointed with my visit. There was also a lack of dog waste bins - with these only appearing to be in the car park. Sorry I can rate the cafe or house as these were closed, but grounds very popular with local dog walkers.
  • Although the gardens are still being renovated the woodland walks are lovely and the "weehailes" play park is excellent for small and big kids!
  • Great dog walking spot. Good views and lots of space. Good parking but only free for National Trust members.
  • Great for young children and family walks try the new stables café
  • Good country side walks, beautiful NTS site, prices are uncompetitive
